Title: It’s Never Too Early: Executive Function Strategies For 4-5 Year Olds Live & Recorded Webinar Aug. 29, 2018 6:30 - 8:30 Pm EST All who register also get the recording. This live webinar is presented by nationally recognized speaker, Sally Grimes. Sally's impressive bio is listed below. “As essential as they are, we aren’t born with the skills that enable us to control impulses, make plans, and stay focused. We are born with the potential to develop these capacities—or not—depending on our experiences during infancy, throughout childhood, and into adolescence.” (Center on the Developing Child – Harvard University.) Pre-school and kindergarten children with Executive Function problems may stand out as having extra difficulty with transitioning from one activity to another (mental flexibility), holding onto the beginning of a story while listening to the middle and end (working memory) or waiting their turn (inhibitory control)… spite of good instruction. Although we have long known about the executive function skills needed to develop these capacities, it is only recently that the related professional development has been available. This webinar will provide educators and parents of Pre K through K children with basic information about executive function and specific ideas for helping children develop the ability to focus attention, switch gears, plan more efficiently and hold and work with information that is in their heads. These abilities have been likened to having an air traffic control system in our brains to manage the traffic. Outcomes: 1. Describe ways to use cartoon characters, puppets, role-playing, songs and stories to model the executive function skills to be practiced and learned. 2. Describe ways tohare key resources such as videos and websites with colleagues and parents so that there is consistency in expectations and practices. 3. Explain how to enhance the school and/or home environment to reflect desired outcomes. Within several weeks of purchasing this webinar, you will receive an email from with the Go To Webinar link, the handout, and instructions for earning your certificate of attendance. 2 Cont. Ed. Hrs will be awarded to all who complete the webinar and SLPs can receive Certification Maintenance Hours (CMHs)which are accepted by ASHA. These are not the kind of CEUs that go into the SLP's ASHA registry. More info on CMHs can be obtained from the ASHA website.
